Arnie was born in Herbert, SK on September 15, 1935 ,to Jack and Ragna (Solberg) Ducharme. Marrying Marie Hallborg and celebrating 58 years of marriage until her passing on May 9, 2015. Working in electrical most of his life. Living in Chaplin and Churchbridge, SK, Thompson, MB and Creighton, SK. Dad loved music and played fiddle, banjo, guitar. He was an avid rock hound and ham radio operator.
Dad was a real character to all who really knew him. Always loved a great conversation and a few good jokes. Loving garage sales and hunting down a deal. But he will always be my “favourite antique”.
Thank you to all who took time to really get to know my dad. I will forever miss our 10:10 p.m. phone calls.
Never to say goodbye but “Pass a good one” was his cliché.
Thank you to the staff at the Flin Flon General Hospital, St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon, and all who provided care. Also thank you to Dadson Funeral Home.
You held my hand when I was small,
You caught me when I fell.
You are the hero of my childhood
And my later years as well.
And every time I think of you
My heart still fills with pride.
Though I will always miss you Dad.
I know you’re by my side.
In laughter and in sorrow
In sunshine and in rain.
I know you’re watching over me
Until we meet again.
